Where to find Plastic Concentric/Stacked knobs?

    I'm trying to find a place where I can find plastic concentric knobs. All I can find are metal ones (and I don't want to change out all of my knobs because of it. and I really like the stock knobs on my Elrick).

    I'm looking for the typical Bartolini style concentric/stacked knob set ... like the on my bass below (not the bass I'm needing it for ;) :smug:)


    I'm going to do a WTB thread, but I don't have much luck with those.

    Thanks ahead of time. :)

    I've seen plastic ones on Mouser, but don't think they match that style, and don't know what type/size shaft you've got (that sounds kinda wrong...).

    I checked them out ... can't find any online.

    I think I'll try to call Bartolini tomorrow ... perhaps they know who might have them (or by the off, chance they might)

    I just can't believe it's this hard to find plastic ones ... metal, sure ... just no plastic. :meh:

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
  8. Good luck on that calling Bartolini customer service idea! Let us know how that goes!

    Eeeh, if I end up installing this NTBT preamp in my GWB35, I'll sell you the plastic stack knobs cheap. But I might not install it, so didn't want to get your hopes up by mentioning it before.

    Hey thanks for that! :)

    ... some light at the end of the tunnel is better than knowing it's boarded up. :D

    As far as calling Bart ... it's a shot in the dark. :smug:

    I made a WTB thread ... but I generally don't have too much luck with those.

    I have the EMG ones if you want them - I'll never use them. I'll send them to you, free of charge. PM me your address.

    You ROCK!!! :)

    (it's times like these that make me so proud to be a member of such a great cast of bassists! :))
  12. I think you need to check with luthiers. I know that those came with Barts on most M Tobias basses but once got help from Rudy's Music Stop for a set too.
    Could't find anywhere else so far.
